Daybed Envy

I have been on the hunt for the perfect daybed for our 2nd bedroom/office for months now.  There are some options I've been debating, like this one from west elm in white, or this onefrom ballard designs.  Both of these are good options but they come no where close to the awesomeness or beauty of these:

Palmer Weiss

Amanda Nisbet

Eileen Kathryn Boyd
Mary McDonald



We did purchase a daybed for our living room that I love. Unfortunately I just don't think it will be big enough for us to use as a guest bed in our second bedroom.  I will post pictures when it is finally in our home and hopefully some readers can help me decide where to put it.

Max Azria's Home

Ok, I know that this home has been posted on a few blogs already but I can't help myself but post it here as well. I love the use of metallics and bright pops of color throughout the house. It's really very amazing. Plus I am pretty positive that I have found my new living room inspiration!

I absolutely love the pale gray walls, the classic pieces - sofa, ottoman, coffee table - All mixed in with bright orange, deep brown, and pops of silver and bronze. To me this is the perfect mix of traditional and modern- love it! I have been scouring over how to mix gray and brown with bright colors and I think this room has nailed it. Now I just hope I can do something similar in my own living room.

I wish I had a spare room in my home to decorate in this black, yellow, and white. Gorgeous!
I've always wanted a library with floor to ceiling shelves that require a ladder to reach the highest books.
I'm very jealous.

I have no idea what is going on here with this tree trunk/waterfall but it looks cool.

Amazing ceiling.

I hope you've enjoyed this as much as I did. What a beautiful couple and a beautiful home.
